A Year of Projects Update - week 17

We have made it to the half term break!  Me and the boys have taken a little trip to visit my mum and dad this weekend and then we will return to make the most of the week off.  We shall be visiting a zoo tomorrow and then Hever castle in the week to indulge in a bit of Halloween fun!

But what have I been working on?
I have been quite monogamous of late.  I am so nearly finished with my Christmas jumper.  I have finished the yoke and am on the neck ribbing, but I didn't bring it with me so will finish when I return home.
My October socks have been worked on and I am currently on the heel of the second sock - these two should be finished very soon.

Otherwise I am working on a few things for a craft stall I will have in a couple of weeks.
Dream knitting
I have yet to cast on the pumpkin spice mittens, but will do later this week.  I have just signed up to do another test knit for socks which I will start later this week.  I also hope to cast on Chuck by Andi Satterlund  but the end of the week. 
None this week, but have gone a bit mad online so will have a bit of a haul next week.
I am about to run out of charge now so will be back next week with FO's and new yarn - hopefully!  Hope you have a great week.


  1. THe colours of your socks are the colours I am using for Ruth's sock testknit. I see you are joining too. It will be fun to compare socks at the end.

  2. The sock colors are very pretty and remind me of autumn leaves. Enjoy your mid term break.

  3. I thought you just went back to school? LOL! Lucky you! I love those socks...the yarn looks very soft and is it a gradient? Enjoy your visit with your folks!

  4. Midterm breaks are such a good idea. We used to get a long weekend, but we lost that when our governor outlawed unions for government employees. I'm glad you enjoyed yours!

  5. I just can't get over that you have time to create items for a craft stall every year, Lucy. You just amaze me. School schedules are ever evolving where I live and it seems they are trying to move close to a European (or maybe it's just a UK?) way of doing things. As a homeschooler I sometimes tried to follow a quarterly system (because it's easy to recognize the benefits of it), but it's hard to buck the tradition that has become established in one's brain.
